I had to take some pictures this morning of my garden. Everything is looking so pretty I thought maybe some of you snowbirds up north that haven't been able to plant yet may want a little inspiration

My potato row

Potatoâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s in the ground

Zuchinni and eggplants are blooming

Green beans up to the top of the poles and tomatos blooming and putting on fruit everywhere

Some herbs. First pic is my dill patch, second is rosemary and basil, and the last one is basil, tarragon and catnip. The tarragon is real small. I also have some basil, chives and cilantro on another row but didnâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t get a pic of them.

And to top it all off the peaches are loaded up on the trees

Hope you enjoy it

Great looking garden Cajun.

I must get me rear in gear and do some planting this week
....if nothing else at least my herbs!!!
Gee! ... we got flowers and the trees just popped their leaves, but we don't even plant until the 3rd week of May and even then, we have to watch for frost.
No fair!
I feel your pain Sqeezy...we had a frost warning last night for the surrounding counties to the north. Our last official freeze date is May 15th
. But I remember years when we got a frost even after then.
Yeah, our official date is our Victoria Day weekend (week after your Columbus Day) ... but yes, can still have snow as well.
FYI ... we call our weekend the May two-four weekend, because we stock up on cases of beer to consume. 24 to the case.
Good looking produce for sure. Spring is certainly a fun gardening time. Where in WV are you from Big Pete? It is so nice to see fellow Mountaineers on the forum.
